Williams back with a vengeance


MULTIPLE GRAND Slam winner Serena Williams was victorious in the final of the Stanfield Classic, California, defeating France’s Marion Bartoli 7-5, 6-1.

It is the Americans first trophy since winning Wimbledon last year.

The win is the perfect preparation for Williams as the U.S Open begins on August 29 which is the last Grand Slam to take place in 2011.

The 29-year-old has struggled this year with a foot injury and also had to have a large hematoma surgically removed from her stomach in February.

The 13-time Grand Slam winner is now ranked 79th in the world.
